    I am needing to make a list of addresses to e-mail each month to a place that will be doing my mailing and I was wondering what would be the best way to do this? I started on microsoft word spreadsheet but thought I had better check with some one that knows a lot more about this than I do..


    ***Thanks, Becky***

    Contact the people that are going to set up your mailing list and see what they want.

    I'd guess in a database would be easiest, but that would be only a guess. That way they can be sorted any number of ways for future use.

    Excel works well.
    My favorite is the Address Book in OS X. If they are using a Mac where you send it, you could just send the addresses in standard Vcard format.
    Most program support the Vcard format like Palm Desktop.

    BUt, again you need to know what they want/need.

    Are you using Windows?
    If you are using windows xp:
    Start/all programs/Microsoft office/excel

    If you are on a Mac (probably not but just in case) Macintosh HD/application/Microsoft office/excel

    If you don't have Microsoft Office you probably don't have Excel. You can use OpenOffice which has a similar program, and it is free:

    Use OpenOffice.org Calc

    hope that helps, God bless!

    I have Microsoft Office Tools on my program menu so I just assumed I would have excel.
